"the new york times" reported over the weekend, for example, the overwhelming strength of the fighting force is made up of the most extreme groups. some of whom have ties to al qae qaeda. do we give them weapons? what option does that leave us in the united states? what does that end up being? a treaty, perhaps? bashar al assad in russia? both those outcomes seem unlikely. the war drums are out there. ca
